Formula, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a synergistic and
comprehensive combination of natural ingredients, including glucosamine
sulfate, bovine and shark cartilage/mucopolysaccharides, and bromelain,
carefully formulated and specifically designed to ease discomfort while
maintaining and restoring the structure and function of healthy joints.
Uni-Joint™ Formula capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for
those who wish to support the structure and function of healthy joints.
is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in glycosoaminoglycans
(mucopolysaccharides), integral components of the proteoglycans found
in joint cartilage. Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate rich
structures that provide resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing,
compressive and lubricating properties to joints and connective
tissues. Dietary glucosamine serves as an immediate precursor for
glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and also stimulates incorporation of other
precursors into the connective tissue matrix.
of glucosamine is an integral part of the synthesis of
glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that are necessary during the
constant remodeling that aging cartilage undergoes. Thus, the
maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced
deposition of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. Bioavailability of
oral glucosamine sulfate is excellent. It is absorbed intact, and
utilized very quickly by all tissues, including connective tissues.
Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used for connective tissue
metabolism than other glucosamine sources, such as cartilage extracts
or chondroitin sulfate.
Glucosamine sulfate is a well
recognized, highly effective source of glucosamine for
glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues,
such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone. Bromelain, a
protease from the pineapple plant, reduces the production of
proinflammatory prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade.
Its ability to help modulate normal inflammatory processes and support
the discomfort associated with aging joints.
